Department of Medical Physics and Radiation Protection
The department covers the medical field of radiological physics at the University Hospital Olomouc. It was established in the mid-2000s by an association of physicists originally dispersed in the fields of nuclear medicine, radiotherapy and radiodiagnostics. The establishment of a separate department ensures the independence of radiological physicists at the individual sites of the hospital. The department enables them to supervise radiation protection and also to centrally control and manage activities previously covered by each of the individual sites. The basic mission of the department is the systematic management of the physical characteristics of the process of medical irradiation in the treatment and diagnosis using ionizing radiation.
